“This is how a cemetary should look....”

Mount Mora Cemetery
Ranked #11 of 51 things to do in Saint Joseph
Attraction details
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Driving through and stopping as desired, we took a good solid hour to see the tombstones, monuments, and appreciate the slice of St. Joseph, MO life and death from the 1700's through current. Beautiful rolling hills, not impeccably maintained (this isn't Disneyworld) but sufficient. An intriguingly beautiful cemetery.

I had to stop by here while we were in town to try and find the graves of some of my ancestors. It was a Sunday so their office was closed. But their website is pretty helpful with its find a grave feature and I was able to find many of my ancestors. Only not being able to find 2 which I will go back and find someday when the office is open.. The mausoleum row is beautiful in its architecture. The head stones all old and exquisite.

My only complaint is much of the cemetery was not kept up well. It was over grown and knee high with grass and weeds. Making finding many stones harder to do. And being summer full of bugs and left me itching. There were also quite a few stones knocked over and not set right again. But this could be lack of budget and not the cemetery's staff fault.
If you are an old cemetery buff this is one not to miss.

Pre-Civil War graves, ornate mausoleums and headstones. Wish the upkeep was better, but certainly worth a look!

Mausoleum row is a must see! Just think about the pre-civil war people fighting and how they were buried here.

Take a peaceful drive through the cemetery. It will only take you 10-15 minutes to drive all the way around and through the middle. Beautiful headstones and mausoleums.
